    What do you mean - I don't quite understand the question. Are you taling about "all arrays" or some specific Array?

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!

    The answer to this lies in the definition of what a derived type means - it is, generally speaking, a type that has been constructed from other types. So how does that mean that an array is derived?
